    Delivering Social Value through Community Collaboration

    The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 requires that you deliver social value in all public service contracts of all types. Scary? It needn’t be – we can help you!

    On 6th June 2014, we brought together people from all sectors and sizes of organisations and gave them a space to explore together how building Social Value can benefit their organisations; we shared practical approaches to delivering, measuring, evaluating and evidencing Social Value; we were inspired by fantastic speakers; and best of all, we heard how people in the room were helping their own communities.

    Feedback from the seminar included “Super, smashing, great” and “Inspiring”. Have a read of our Seminar report – there were some great ideas from delegates. 

    See what you missed! You can take a look at the photos.

    We’re sure you’ll agree that Yorkshire Photographer, Karen Rangeley, captured some amazing shots.
